IDEO.org has issued its second annual call for fellows to serve as “innovators in residence.” The 2013 class of fellows will follow eight diverse fellows, currently part of the nonprofit start-up’s inaugural year. Those eight were selected from an applicant pool in 2011 of over 400. Phase 1 applications for the 2012-2013 fellowship year are due Friday, December 9, 2011; select candidates will be invited to participate in a more in-depth round of reviews, followed by interviews.
The IDEO.org Fellowship Program enables future global leaders from the design, business, and social sectors to spend one year working with experienced IDEO designers to address poverty-related challenges using the tools of human-centered design. Over a 12-month period, Fellows will deliver solutions for non-profits, social enterprises, and foundations on an array of topics, such as: agriculture, gender equity, financial services, health, water, and sanitation.
